Dear Mr. Minnick



Another great video from the Idaho Uninsured Story Project.

As MG asks, how can anyone vote against health care reform? A day in the life of Margaret or any other of the thousands of uninsured and underinsured Idahoans would surely change his mind. If Mr. Minnick had a conscience...
